After weeks of criticising the Nigeria Professional Football League, NPFL Club Owners’ decision to cancel the 2019/2020 league season through the Point Per Game, (PPG system) Lobi Stars have accepted the Nigeria Football Federation, NFF’s decision to approve the cancellation of the country top flight league through the PPG system to determine the nation’s representative at the continental tournaments.
According to the Lobi Stars chairman, Mike Idoko in a release said that the Makurdi based club has accepted the application of the PPG which stood as an obstacle to their dreams to play in the continent later this year.
The club accepted the final decision of the NFF “without ill feelings and wish all the clubs that emerged as continental representatives 2020/2021 best of luck and God’s guidance to do well in their respective CAF inter-club championships,” part of the statement read.
“Following The NFF and other stake holders virtual meeting held on Friday 10th July, 2020 which adopt the voting opinion of the club owners of both the NPFL and NNL, Lobi Stars Football Club Makurdi in the spirit of sportsmanship do hereby congratulate the three top ranking clubs that emerged 2020/2021 CAF Inter-club representatives through the instrumentality of the Points Per Game mechanism.
“As a club we had opposed the application of the PPG as it stood as an obstacle to our dreams of been in the continent next year, but no matter how rational our opinion is cannot pass the test of time if majority of the stake holders hold a contrary opinion, wrongly or rightly.
“We hereby accept the final decision of the NFF without ill feelings and wish all the clubs that emerged as continental representatives 2020/2021 best of luck and God’s guidance to do well in their respective CAF inter-club championships.
“We had fought for what we felt was right but right cannot always be in the majority as well as majority may not always be right but could always carry the day where the voice of majority becomes the yard stick.
“Lobi Stars will always be in the fore front of supporting the growth of Nigeria Football and remain law abiding to both The LMC and NFF in the interest of all.
“We declare the end result as a case of no victor, no vanquish! There will always be another chance
